Carver-Atlanta 'attitude and toughness' key in win over Mundy's Mill

Carver's Lataious Stepp Jr. #21 blocks for Taurin Kemp #4

On Friday, the Mundy’s Mill Tigers hosted the Carver Atlanta Panthers in a non-region battle, however, for the Tigers, their unbeaten record was on the line, while Carver looked to end a four game losing streak and the Panthers would waste no time letting their intentions be know. On the opening drive and second play of the game, Carver’s Montavious Banks would connect with Terrious Favors, who would pick up big yardage after the catch and make his way into the end zone. And with the extra point, the Panthers would take the early 7-0 lead.

The second quarter would see the two teams play to a stalemate with each defense holding their own and Carver Atlanta would maintain their 7-0 lead at the half. In the third quarter, despite a great defensive effort by the Tigers, in which they stop the Panthers from scoring on a fourth and goal, the ensuing Mundy’s Mill possession would find the Tigers backed up against their own goal line and that would prove to be troublesome as Carver would snuff out an attempted run play and pick up the tackle for loss in the end zone and add two more points courtesy of a safety.

The quick momentum change would the lead to another scoring drive by the Panthers as Banks would throw his second touchdown of the night, finding Justin Johnson Jr. in the end zone and Carver would take a 16-0 lead. In the fourth quarter, the Tigers offensive struggles continued as the Panthers’ defense took away the Mundy’s Mill ground game forcing Tigers’ quarterback Donovan Morton to try and attack through the air, however the Carver secondary was ready for the pas attack coming up with three interceptions on the night, including a pick six that would seal the Panthers’ victory as they would go on to pick up the 28-0 win.

“I thought it was great,” Carver head coach, Darren Myles said after the game when asked about how he felt he team played in their final non region matchup ahead of their region schedule. “I wanted to see a lot of effort, I wanted to see us play with a nasty attitude and toughness,” Myles added while giving Mundy’s Mill praise for how well they have been playing this season, heading into Friday’s game with no losses on the season. “You can see where us playing tough opponents also paid off tonight, so I think that’s a good pre cursor to our region play,” Myles continued.

When asked about the performance of his players on defense as they shut the Tigers out, Myles noted that the Panthers’ performance last week “disappointed” them as they believe that the way they played in the loss to Peach County did not reflect their talents. “It was encouraging to see them come out and lock down their receivers because they have an explosive offense,” Myles said of Mundy’s Mill. The Panthers will now turn their attention to Sandy Creek, who they will face next Friday as they open up region play
